Just came back from Sedona on my first Road Scholar trip. Most important part of the trip was the watercolor instruction. Art teacher Sierra McKenna was the best instructor I have studied with! Not to mention an exceptional artist. That alone was worth every dollar we spent! Will definitely book with Road Scholar again.

This was my second Road Scholar trip and I was pleased that the quality of instruction, lodging, meals, and evening programs was consistently god. Sierra Mc Kenna provided excellent instruction for all skill levels. Her organization was excellent for both the specific techniques of water color and composition, design and color theory in general for all media.

I really enjoyed the classes with Sierra McKenna in Sedona. There couldn't be a more inspirational setting. She packed in demonstrations and lectures to make the most of our/her time. At times it felt like too much, but we have lots of time at home to integrate the information. Sierra's a perfectionist, but she was kind to remind us that practice is the key. I was not disappointed.

Had a wonderful time at Sedona Watercolor Workshop. Not picking up a brush in many years, it didn't take long to relearn from our excellent instructor Sierra McKenna. She encouraged us and always had positive feedback for us. The group of ladies taking the workshop were a great and enthusiastic bunch. Lots of laughter while learning.

If you are a serious watercolor student, you will not find a better instructor than Sierra McKenna. She is organized,knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and helpful. Painting with her for a week was a delightful experience.

Instructor very experienced and able to explain techniques well, all levels of students in class and all able to paint at their level. Everyone learned something new.

The watercolor class in Sedona, Arizona is outstanding and I highly recommend it to artists of all levels. The instructor, Sierra McKenna, is not only a master at watercolor, but she is a master teacher too! The scenery, accommodations, meals, art studio, and field trips were all perfect! Thank you Road Scholar for making this experience one I will definitely do again and again!

Everything about this adventure was top notch. The leaders were very intelligent, gentle and we learned more than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in watercolors. Sedona is beautiful and the weather was lovely.
